Men aren't freaked out when women use their bathrooms, have you never been at a crowded concert hall?
Aren't pretty much all teenage school shooters bullied kids? I certainly have sympathy and could see an insanity defense, and perhaps mental health treatment is needed.
But we still can't just let people off for shooting people.

Do you feel differently about heterosexual vs homosexual trans people? by Bogos in GenderCritical
I think there will always be some gay guys, trans or not, who naturally get included in women's social groups and things.
And I think that's kind of the crux of it. There's always been, "Oh Jo, he's one of the girls, let's invite him along", and because this has been the case, some people say, "Well since they made an exception for Jo, they HAVE to make one for me"

So, this is a result of 9-11.
Prior to then, feminists were absolutely talking about these issues. Those old enough to remember the 80s and 90s may remember support for the Afghai women who were living behind painted windows, books like "Not Without my Daughter" and "Princess" were super popular with feminists, etc.
After 9-11, "Those muslims are mean to women!" became an excuse to bomb them. Which, as we all know, isn't good for women. That's when this became an issue. No one wanted to criticize Islam because many Western countries WERE at war with Muslim ones, and "bashing" them was seen as an endorsement. It became a further issue with the continuing migration.
So that's the cultural context of all of this.

Stone Butch Blues free e-book by Jalaces in GenderCritical
I loved this book when I first read it as a youngster, re-read it recently and man is it poorly written. None of the femmes have personalities. I can't tell her girlfriends apart. Except for the transwoman, Peaches.
That said there are some very powerful scenes in there. Rape and violence aside... there's this one funeral scene where clothing choices become an issue.
How do you really feel about Joe Biden saying his VP pick will be a black woman? by medium_tomato in GenderCritical
I agree he shouldn't have announced it, he should have just picked one.
For decades women haven't been chosen because "The US isn't ready for a female president".
All those guys got chosen BECAUSE they were men.
Everyone gets chosen because of their demographic, and how people feel about it. It's very rare that it doesn't play the part. We just don't notice it when it's a man because it is the default. But their sex played a factor too...
VPs are always chosen to court voters who are on the fence about the candidate, and to bring them solidly into the fold.
I hope she's awesome whoever she is.

But if someone is worried, the cautious thing to do would be to invite a friend over the day of the installation.

You make a lot of good points. I feel forums like reddit, and saidit, tend to bring out horrible racial points of view and reinforce them. This is not limited to the GC community, but the GC community is part of it.
Radical feminism SHOULD be for all women, but all women are going to bring in their own biases and issues and that's gonna include racism unfortunately.
I know navigating racial waters and feminism can be very tricky for white women. Trying to support women who are being harmed in other societies can lead to bashing those societies and bring out racism. Ignoring women in those societies because one is afraid of looking racist throws those women under the bus and is its own form of racism. So we need to be careful, but make sure we are still supporting all women of all colors.
I think the people criticizing Islam tend to also be criticizing Christianity. I haven't noticed much glorification towards Christianity. I will say both of these religions are ideologies and criticizing an ideology is different than bashing a race.
The people criticizing Judaism on the left, be they liberal feminists or left wing men or rad fems are often angry about the Israel/Palestine situation. I agree there is a lot wrong with that situation, I think however you are right and it DOES spill over into anti-semitism, or gets used as a handy cover for it.
